svn export improvement request

Hi everybody
if a user like me made a mistake while using export (the dir name does not exist),
svn may not create the directory given in PATH before testing the URL

Example:

C:\>svn export file:///v:/projets/repository/ecarnax/site/maquette c:/site
svn: Filesystem has no item
svn: file not found: revision `48', path `/ecarnax/site/maquette'

And now c:/maquette exists on my HD, but it contains only .svn, and thus it is not usefull. But I do not know it, since I think it fails

Then I correct the URL and resume the task

C:\>svn export file:///v:/projets/repository/ecarnax/maquette/site c:/site
svn: Obstructed update
svn: revision 48 doesn't match existing revision 0 in 'C:/site'

But since c:/site was created, I cannot do that. I must delete it before.

Well it is not very user-friendly.
